  • Among the states and territories, Oklahoma’s House delegation had the 6th largest average net spending reduction agenda: $98.3 billion.
  • Both of Oklahoma’s Senators were “net cutters”, meaning that the legislation they supported would, on net, reduce federal spending if enacted. Their combined net spending agendas would decrease spending by about $313 billion.
  • Oklahoma’s Senators had the 9th lowest average agenda of any state’s delegation in the Senate.
